2017 Program preview
friday night 'shorts AT the SEA'
Friday 8 September 2017
Doors open 6pm.
As a first for GBRFF, 'Shorts At The Sea' will be held at the picturesque location of the old ferry landing in Geoffrey Bay - an easy 5 minute walk from the Arcadia Village Hotel.
Set under the stars with a bar and food available, you'll be able to enjoy the outdoors, (and the friendly rock wallabies) with the lapping of waves and the lights of Townsville in the distance. Come and celebrate some excellent Australian short films with an inspiring line up of talented filmmakers, under a (nearly) full moon!
A RETREAT FOR ACTORS, ARTISTS, WRITERS, DIRECTORS, PRODUCERS & CREW
"You don't have to be an actor or artist to have a life changing experience at this retreat!"
Headed by international actor and coach ANDY MCPHEE. Andy has worked with many well known actors in Hollywood and Australia and believes, “Don’t be a spectator in life. Get on the court and change your game!”
This unique, powerful and transformational retreat will show you how to.
